Forums: Index Narutopedia Discussion Cells = bloodline limit?
Note: This topic has been unedited for 808 days. It is considered archived - the discussion is over. Do not add to unless it really needs a response.

I would like serious opinions from intelligent editors on this one. Should we really classify characters dosed with cells of other characters as having their bloodline limits? There is only 1 exception (maybe more) in the series where this is valid as the host and guest cells have merged (Madara) What I'm asking about is "(temporary)" in the infoboxes after them. For example, Danzo lost the ability to perform Wood Release once he severed the arm and all these "thieves" can use them only for as long as the cells which allow them to do so are alive in their bodies.

Kabuto's infobox should reflect it like this:

  • Sakon and Ukon's Kekkei Genkai (temporary)
  • Shikotsumyaku (temporary)

Oh, and Kakashi's too:

  • Sharingan/Mangekyou Sharingan (temporary)

If it's a transplant and not part of their blood, in my opinion, it's better like this.--Elveonora (talk) 15:11, June 25, 2013 (UTC)

In answer to your question yes, and i say yes because I'f your dosed with somebody else's cells then those cells live inside of you they may become part of you, and you can use those cells just like danzo and the wood release --ROOT 根 · Talk 15:17, 6/25/2013 15:17, June 25, 2013 (UTC)

To a degree I agree, I mean it's not like Wood release was present throughout all of Danzo's cells like Yamato or Zetsu, more like a transplant, but at the same time, everything Kakashi has done with the Sharingan is what Kakashi has done with this ability, no one else, he deserves the credit for all he has achieved with it, where as Kabuto just copied the traits of others directly. So if I were to suggest a change of sorts it would be to label the ability as (transplanted) not (temporary). --Hawkeye2701 (talk) 15:30, June 25, 2013 (UTC)

Yes, transplanted is good too, just any word to distinguish an inborn trait and something added later--Elveonora (talk) 15:35, June 25, 2013 (UTC)

Except we don't do those "temporary". Once upon a time, a long time ago, we used to add former when certain techniques were no longer available. For example, when Sasuke's Black Chidori was its own article, it and Cursed Seal of Heaven had either "formerly" or "inaccessible" added to it in the character infobox. We obviously dropped it. I don't see how what you're suggesting is any different from that. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 22:13, June 25, 2013 (UTC)

You are correct, it's not that much different thinking about it. But it's not exactly the same either. Talking about dropped habits, I didn't even notice that Sasuke's body shedding no longer reflects that it was done with Orochimaru absorbed for example... why is that? Since when? And who decided as such? Could it be that even I did participate and am not remembering it? :P In a way, things like "removed" or "formerly" etc. aren't good for sure since the wiki covers the plot overall, but on another hand it should be clear that something is possible thanks to a condition that may not last forever. Like for example Collaboration Techniques we list "x with y/y with x" so the habit in a way prevails still ;) --Elveonora (talk) 23:13, June 25, 2013 (UTC)
